Haven’t we all wanted to have that summer body? Take of that t-shirt and see those abs glistening in the Sun… Well maybe that’s not your thing, or maybe you aren’t that motivated. However, as someone who is a follower of Jesus you cannot say that your physical body doesn’t matter, all that matters is the soul and spiritual things. Just by the sheer fact that Jesus rose from the dead physically with a physical resurrected body should say enough (Romans 8:34). The bible is pretty clear that the way we treat our bodies is extremely important. God says to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice” (Romans 12: 1), God’s spirit dwells in us (1 Corinthians 3:16) and we will be resurrected bodily one day (John 6:40; 1 Corinthians 15:20; Philippians 3:21). I have only listed some of the reasons why, as a Christian, we should care for our bodies better than anyone else in the world.
